Milk Glass and a Giveaway...


I love the versatility of milk glass!  There are so many different styles and pieces that it can go with any decor!  I am not really a collector, I just have ended up with some pretty pieces that I enjoy using.  I recently found a punch bowl set in a thrift shop.  I saw a photo in Country Living magazine a few years back of a milk glass punch bowl full of lemonade with lemon slices floating on top (sorry about the photo quality- I've had the clipping in my file for awhile!).  I thought it was so lovely and could imagine it with punches at every holiday or occasion, so was very happy to finally find mine!  I love its swirled design and think it would also be nice as a serving bowl for salads, etc.

  I also have a footed cake plate- I love footed cake plates and DO have a collection of those.   My three little hobnail goblets serve as sweet vases when lined up on a table.  My favorite piece however, is an antique Victorian footed fruit basket!  I love its ornate openwork and basketweave decoration...maybe I am collecting milk glass!
 
  
  
  
 
For more fun, Laura of 52 Flea is having a wonderful giveaway to celebrate her one year blogging anniversary!  If you haven't visited her beautiful blog (but I'm sure you probably have), you are in for a treat!  She always has the most beautiful visuals and photography!  To celebrate her anniversary she is offering a giveaway of the Spring Edition of Jeanne D' Arc Living Magazine, a $50 gift certificate towards a handcrafted piece of jewelry by Lisa Leonard Designs, and the Winter edition of Somerset Life, in which Laura and 52 Flea is featured!  Congratulations, Laura!
Until next time....

  3. All of your milk glass is really beautiful and I've never seen a milk glass punch bowl set, so pretty! The photo you have with the lemonade is gorgeous and I'm sure your lovely punch bowl will be just as beautiful this spring or summer filled with lemonade and topped with lemon slices. Great find!
